Though Post Animal may have caught the attention of more recent fans due to the involvement of actor and guitarist Joe Keery, best known for his role as Steve Harrington on Netflix’s Stranger Things, these Chicago psych rockers have proven their mettle as a stellar band with their fine releases over the years, too. The band just announced their debut album, out April 20th on Polyvinyl, and they’ve unveiled its lead single, Ralphie, which features Joe on lead vocals despite the fact that the actor has decided to retire from the band’s touring lineup due to his busy acting schedule. Ralphie is quite the driving charmer, a chunky swirling, crunchy whirling slice of gnarled yet luminous rock heavily saturated with sugary pop hooks. Post Animal’s debut album When I Think Of You In A Castle can be pre-ordered, here. The band has announced a U.S. tour that kicks off this next month and lasts through June.
